James Doyle, who was in the saddle for his two Group 1 victories
He had a great temperament – he was solid mentally – nothing fazed him. The one thing that blew me away was his cruising speed, making him an incredibly easy ride. He would quite happily go forward or you could take him back and he would relax. He could also accelerate off that high cruising speed, emphasised when winning his two Group 1 races at Ascot. I’ve ridden some exceptional horses and he’d easily be one of the best ten furlong horses I have ridden. A mile and a quarter was definitely his optimum trip. Poet’s Word was also a great moving horse – he flowed across the ground and although he won on slower ground, a quicker surface brought out the best in him.
